Quit trying to be matchy-matchy let the sofa stand on it's own and live with it for while, then you will slowly get the feel of the room. You don't have to buy everything at once. If you buy things you love it will fit. You don't have to have two of everything. Mixing metals is in, don't alter the silver studs.

Use it as a laundry closet. Maybe a nice comfy chair to read in while waiting on the laundry, a nice table with a lamp, to fold cloths and tuck baskets underneath and a nice garment rack. Keep the office for yourself. I really wouldn't want guests in my office.

I once asked someone "who had no identity" on here what rents in Paris, France are. Since they where bragging about renting there. Maybe a brief idea. I was shunned, never got an answer or any idea. I am working my way there, it would really help if I had an idea from someone who REALLY rents there. It's good to discuss these things. I would never want any other info.

I knew someone who would use CASCADE to get the grass stains out of there sons football uniform and make it white. I also use CASCADE to clean the jets out in my whirlpool tub. Fill tub up add some CASCADE to the water and let the jets run a few minutes. Drain and repeat with fresh water. I do prefer to hang the sheet out on the line, fresh and white.

Nothing worse than having outlet s and plugs in full view. With the work that was done I would have repositioned the plugs to the area behind the back of the bed. Maybe position an nice green plant in front of the outlet. Or, get a low, very wide, solid nightstand with a drawer.

Get a couple of potted plants, a couple of the expandable chairs with the cup holder in the arm. Sit back and enjoy the sun. Not much to work with here, those post do not look safe. Just don't sit under the bird feeder.
